Visas for Non-EU Citizens
The Tier One Investor Visa is becoming more and more popular amongst wealthy individuals and their families as a means of obtaining UK residence. The UK Government has recently made the application process much more flexible as part of its stated aim to encourage entrepreneurs and investors to settle in the UK.
The main requirement is that the applicant must have £1M of their own funds (including assets of their spouse or partner) or £2M of personal wealth with borrowings from a UK bank of £1M. There are numerous other detailed requirements which we can advise on at the application stage.
If managed correctly, the application process is a very simple one and is typically completed within 2 to 4 weeks.
Other visas are available for individuals looking to generate significant economic activity in the UK and we can help to obtain these. The Tier 1 Entrepreneur Visa is available to those who wish to come to the UK to actively run a new or existing UK business. The Sole Representative Visa is available to an overseas employee of an established overseas business coming to the UK to open a representative office, branch or UK subsidiary.
